Trick or treat?

Hey there bloggers,
Well here I am with a halloweeny card, I don't know why but I am drawn to halloweeny things, not too gruesome though , I am officially a scardey cat when it comes to super spooky things!
This card kind of developed and let me play with the wonderful Halloween Tim stamps again , some DI and my new fab stampotique stamp and a few more staples from my attacher I know, I don't think I used it in the last post so I HAD too!!!
Here she is:
The background was again made in two halves which is my thing of the moment!!!I have quite a few!!!things of the moment I mean?!
The lhs was made using DI, then I spritzed with water and blotted off.I blasted it with my heat gun until nearly dry and then over stamped with script, so it bled slightly. Once completely dry I added a couple of black cobwebs...I love this stamp!The rhs used my fav resist technique, stamping my much loved cobwebs in perfect medium, clear embossing and then adding DI.Once dry I overstamped with bats and barbed wire (such a useful stamp).Then I added some black soot DI using cut n dry, gently does it!!!
The label and date were stamped and coloured.
more piccies...I know I now too many!SORRY!!!
The text is my favourite computer script, The fab stampotique stamp was coloured using pro markers and glaze pen, I added some pumice stone DI around edges...as I knew I wouldn't get my attacher all the way round I cheated...well used cunning and stapled first then glued on background!!!
I added a mini ideaology paper clip to poison label.

thanks for ploughing through all my ramblings!!
